Photographing People from Home to the Street 1W20
Elevate the visual and conceptual standards of your photographs of people. Learn how to photograph people in a variety of situations and to transform these captured moments into resonant, universal truths. Through new assignments each week, photograph in both new and familiar situations to capture a broad range of the human experience. We will also view the work of influential photographers whose primary focus has been to capture the human spirit in a range of portrait styles.
